My deepest and most sincere condolences to the Hernandez family. Jesse was a great role model and devout catholic man, friend, father, husband, grandpa. He taught many of us growing up many values that I still and always live by. May the Perpetual Light always shine upon him, and may he rest in peace in God's Heavenly Kingdom. My prayers always with you.
